About this book
Spectacular photos begin with your Sony Alpha and this book. With its Alpha A300 and A350 cameras, Sony has blurred the distinction between introductory and advanced dSLRs. With the expert advice in this book, you’ll learn to use every menu and control perfectly and gain insight into setting up and capturing shots that will amaze you.  Reach beyond the automatic settings and take control of exposure, shutter speed, white balance, and every creative element that makes photography an art. Part I explores using your Sony Alpha A300 or A350 straight out of the box. Starting with an in depth look at the Sony Quick AF Live View System, this part of the book also explores all the external controls, explaining the purpose and function of each button, dial, and switch. Understanding your camera’s menu system is crucial to getting great results with the A300 or the A350, and of course the book will also teach you how to maneuver through all of your camera’s menus. You’ll not only learn how to adjust each setting, but when and why you should make each adjustment. Chapter 3 gives a thorough explanation of basic photography fundamentals, without overwhelming jargon and technical terms. If you are a new photographer you will gain an appreciation of aperture, shutter speed, exposure, ISO and white balance. If you are an experienced photographer you’ll find helpful tips and tricks for adjusting each of these key settings. Interchangeable lenses are one of a dSLR's major strengths, and that is true of both the A300 and A350. With so many lens options, choosing auxiliary lenses for the A300 series can become overwhelming. Chapter 4 helps you eliminate the mystery about which lenses to buy and gives you a full explanation of what to look for when evaluating a new lens. With information on wide-angle, normal, telephoto, and macro lenses, this chapter discusses the full Sony lens lineup and goes on to demystify the option of using Minolta lenses on the Sony Alpha. Understanding light and light modifiers, such as diffusers and reflectors, is absolutely essential to getting great results from a dSLR. In chapter 5, you'll find a complete discussion of lighting basics, including the differences between continuous lighting and electronic flash. The full array of light modifiers is outlined, and the chapter goes on to explain the strengths and weaknesses of the proprietary Sony/Minolta hot shoe design. Naturally, there is also a discussion of which flash units work with the A300 series. Chapter 6 consists of a series of exercises designed to enhance your skills when shooting in a wide variety of photographic situations, including everything from macro photography and black and white to high dynamic range, portrait, and travel photography. Each topic is accompanied by numerous full color examples. DSLR photography entails far more than just the camera and lens. Once you fill your memory card with great images, you will need to download, catalog, store and edit those images. Chapter 7 takes you through a quick, but informative tour of the software and hardware options available to simplify your digital workflow. You will be exposed to the differences between RAW and JPEG images and you'll receive a thorough overview of your RAW processing options. You also learn about sharpening and noise reduction software, as well as the best editing applications.

About this book
Meet the A300 and A350—the two newest cameras in Sony’s beginner-friendly “A” series. They’re alike except for sensor resolution (the 350 has the highest available in any consumer model), and are perfect for anyone ready to move up from point-and-shoot cameras. That’s because they actually allow photographers to view the scene in front of them on the LCD monitor prior to shooting. Owners will look to this guide to find out how to use the Live Preview with AF and exposure control; adjustable variable angle LCD monitor that flips out and twists; and Super SteadyShot(R) image stabilization that vastly reduces blur.

    Finally a top notch trigger for Sony Alphas

    0 5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Phottix Multi 5-In-1 Sony Set Stratos ll (Black) (Electronics) Purchesed these triggers after researching them on line. I shoot with a Sony camera which has a unique flash mount. The Strato II triger fit perfectly. They also have a shoe release button which most of the other triggers do not have. No more of the trigger falling off the camera. They are well built, especialy when compare to most of the cheep trigers. They use "AA" batteries which is a plus. I have tried them at 200' and they fired perfectly every time. I plan on buying more receivers as soon as possible. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 30, 2012

    Sony a77

    0 5/5 David Miller - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Phottix Multi 5-In-1 Sony Set Stratos ll (Black) (Electronics) These are amazing and paired with my Youngnuo YN560-II I'm able to pop off 8fps with my Sony a77. The triggers I got is the Sony/Minolta hot shoe mount and they fit perfectly and have fired on every attempt. My favorite feature with these triggers is that you're able to keep a flash mounted on your camera with the trigger on it as well plus if your flash supports TTL it'll still function on camera but from what I've read it doesn't support TTL on the off camera flash which I'm totally fine with. Get these while you can for the Sony mount because if you haven't been paying attention Sony is going to a "standard" hotshoe mount on all it's new cameras like the a77 mark II, a99, a7/a7 and the NEX 6. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 12, 2014

    Works, but not completely for Sony A33 or A55

    0 4/5 JK - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Phottix Multi 5-In-1 Sony Set Stratos ll (Black) (Electronics) It works, but not completely on the Sony SLT-A33 or Sony SLT-A55. Should work just fine with the higher models though. The Sony SLT-A33 and Sony SLT-A55 do not have the option to brighten up the live-view when a flash is not detected but the newer models do. The Strato II flash trigger is not detected on the Sony camera as a flash, so if you plan on taking pictures in very low light with the Sony SLT-A33 or A55 you will not see anything through the screen or viewfinder. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 25, 2012

    The Best Radio Trigger for the Sony Alpha Camera...

    After much research I opted to purchase the Phottix Odin TTL Flash Trigger for Sony TX/RX Set. I teamed up the trigger with my Sony Alpha 580 and the Sony HVL-43AM flash. TTL works absolutely great, TTL HSS works absolutely great, Manual works absolutely great as well as Manual HSS. Everything the flash advertised worked as marketed.Functionally the Sony HVL-43AM works well with the Phottix Odin system, however, the Sony HVL-43AM DISPLAY does not reflect the switch from TTL to Manual commands being sent by the Phottix Odin Transmitter. I was able to determined that the 43AM did receive the commands, albeit not visibly as I switched from TTL to Manual using the Phottix transmitter. I altered the manual output of the flash via the Phottix transmitter and validated the various output using a Sekonic light meter.I tested the Metz 58 AF-2 MZ Digital Flash for Sony Cameras with the Phottix Odin TTL Flash Trigger for Sony TX/RX Set. The two in tandem worked... 5/5 grier63 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Finally one that works for Sony shooters

    0 5/5 Terry Ward - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Phottix Odin TTL Flash Trigger for Sony TX/RX Set (Accessory) I am so excited about this product! Since I have an Sony A77, it was an journey trying to fine a HSS flash triggering device to trigger my off camera flash. There are a lot of products out there that are made for Canon and Nikon, but when it comes to Sony shooters, companies act like we don't exist. Hats off to Phottix Odin for considering us Sony shooters and giving us an avenue to do off camera triggering. I am well pleased with this product. It is so easy to set up and it does all that it promises.For you Sony shooters out there who are looking for a good triggering system, bite the bullet and get the Phottix Odin; you wont be disappointed. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 25, 2013

    Very Useful At A Budget Price

    I am getting back into photography after 20+ years. I forgot how expensive this hobby / profession can be. Being a tech-geek, I realized radio flash triggers are a must if running 2 or more flash units. Until I found these triggers, the high price of other brands was cost prohibitive for me. You simply cannot beat 2 receiver triggers and one remote transmitter at a $20 price point.I bought 2 sets which provide me a total of 4 receiver triggers and 2 remote transmitters. This works out great for my situation because I use a 3 point lighting configuration consisting of 3 flashes that require firing at once. I place one of the 2 transmitters on my Canon T4i's flash mount to trigger the flashes as I snap a picture, but I also keep the second additional transmitter in my pocket to test fire the flashes while I am away from the camera when I need to get a light meter reading while standing next to my subject with my hand-held flash meter.For this price, don't expect... 4/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Works with ALL cameras, works with NO cameras

    0 5/5 Tumblemark (USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Neewer 4 Channels Wireless/ Radio Flash Trigger Set With 2 Receivers (Electronics) But it works great!Before you ask whether it works with your Brownie Holiday, or whatever, know that there is only ONE pin on its transmitter hot shoe connection (plus bracket ground). Therefore, cameras won't detect it. New cameras use hot shoe contacts for serial communication between flash and camera. This transmitter unit only has a single X (center) terminal, so new cameras of any kind won't detect it; they won't automatically know that a flash is attached. You must change the camera's flash control to manual, or whatever it needs to fire a dead-horse simple flash. Then it works great! The transmitter has a strange 12 V alkaline battery, but no power switch, so it must draw power only when it sends a radio pulse and fires a little red LED. The receivers have both a male hot shot and a 1/4-20 threaded metal, not plastic, insert. Affordable, too. But that 30 m outdoor range might be slightly optimistic. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 23, 2014

    The most affordable consistent radio trigger on the market

    0 5/5 A.H. (New York, NY) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Neewer 4 Channels Wireless/ Radio Flash Trigger Set With 2 Receivers (Electronics) For the price these are advertised at, there is no radio trigger that is more affordable that works consistently.These fire off consistently in my studio. I bought 3 pairs, all set to the same channel. I just hang them from one of the height adjustment knobs on the light stand with a rubber band around the foot of the receiver in order to connect into my monolights with a PC Sync cable. Works perfectly.Funniest thing about these, is that Cowboy Studio is selling the exact same identical model item for double the price as these are. I guess fewer people know about these, because the Cowboy Studio trigger is ranked higher in sales. Go figure. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 30, 2014
